LISA CANNY at The Sugar Club Harp Sessions

Experience a new ‘take’ on Irish harping from some of our foremost young harpers. Cruit Éireann | Harp Ireland’s Sugar Club Harp Sessions continue throughout 2024 and feature innovative, cutting-edge Irish harp performances from a variety of players, pushing the boundaries of the tradition in new and exciting ways.

Our third concert on Thursday 30th May 2024 features Mayo harper Lisa Canny and her band. Writing her own original material, Lisa is inspired as much by contemporary music genres like pop and electronica as she is by Irish traditional music. Her music is unique,exciting and pushes the Irish harp in new directions. In 2022 Lisa released her visual E.P. FOLK+ which received two nominations at Exeter Film Festival, and has recently performed at TedX, collaborated with Rolex, and made the cover of LIFE magazine.

“The most exciting act to come out of Ireland in years” Barry Devlin

“Canny doesn’t do twee and traditional. Instead she rocks the stage like a classically trained Janis Joplin” No More Workhorse
